    Tonight's episode ...... "The Honour of the Kill " ;)

    " Accounting for the quarry" Fox hunting term
    "I've been informed that there ARE a couple of QAnon supporters who are fairly regular posters in AJB."

    I like "Blood from a stone", but I'm not sure.

    "Blood from a stone" implies both violence and toughness, so is a pretty good fit for LTK...

    And Sanchez gets drugs from petrol .......
    And Bond is tough like a rock and does bloody work.
    It may work!

    The computer game Bloodstone might
    Take you to court over it ;)

    The computer game didn't exisit in 1989, so it would have been the other way around. :D

    I've recently started watching again the four 'Lethal Weapon' movies, for their nostalgia value, and I've got as far as #2. The Michael Kamen scores bring to mind LTK, as do parallels between Sanchez's murder of Della and the ways in which successive 'Lethal Weapon' villains menace Murtaugh's family - making it personal, as was vogueish in late 80s actioners.

    Just finished watching 'Lethal Weapon #4' (1998). It has Kamen's best actìon score of the four and shows what he might have been able to offer had he returned to the Bond series after LTK to score any of the Brosnan films. (Not that I'd wish away Arnold).

    For example, Kamen's excellent suspenseful action music in #4 for the fight in Murtaugh's house, when Lorna (Rene Russo) takes on the traffickers, is in his familiar style but approaches Barry's standard closer than the LTK work. Edit: this is actually a reprise of the cue for Russo's kick-assing action scene in LW #3 (also scored by Kamen) so I guess that would definitely make it 'Lorna's Theme'?

    Critics and material I don't need. I haven't changed my act in 50 years.

    Goodness!
    Give Bond a rest for a few months and bugger me if the best thread in years doesn't materialise...
    Special thanks to SofD for starting this. I am quite exhausted of all opinion after reading only page 1.
    Well done to all
    :)
